2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cold butter
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
1. Preheat oven to 450F.
2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the cheese and toss. Stir in heavy cream just until moistened.
3. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 6 to 8 times. Roll to 1/2 -inch thickness; cut with a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.
Makes about 18.
